    Photos on iPad resolution quality question
    Photos taken with a nice Sony DSLR and then transferred to the iPad. It appears the files on the iPad are not as high in resolution as they were on the SD card. Looking at them in the Photo app. Does the iPad store the high rez files somewhere else?

    thanks

    How were they transferred? You can control the quality of pictures taken on the iPad itself, but files sync'ed over remain at whatever size/resolution they were originally at. How are you checking the resolution of the pictures on the iPad?

    The iPad and Sony camera belong to one of my customers. She just brought me the iPad and then emailed me the photo. I checked it's quality in Photoshop. I don't know how she transferred the file.

    Hi jerr3d

    As you are in the business, so to speak, you will already realise that the original Sony DSLR photo has undergone some changes which make it impossible to match resolution.

    Picture on Sony DSLR - transferred to iPad, how? Don't know. Model and vintage of the iPad is not known - early standard model or latest Retina Pro model?

    And then there's the email. Sent in original size/full resolution or compressed for the email?

    To make a meaningful comparison you need the DSLR specs, the iPad specs, how the transfer was made, and what compression, if any was used for the email.

    It's a complicated issue. Let's see if we can sort this out.

    I believe she emailed the photo from her Photos album. Is there a way to navigate on the iPad to where the original file resides?

    Wouldn't just making a photos file size comparison give some rough indication of any image loss or not ????

    I guess you can tell I don't do much photo work.

    Well, at least it's FREE (or theoretically so) so you could give it a try.

    Maybe read the comments at both places, here and the linked App Store:
    https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/47...o-transfer-app

    Some info at the developers site:
    http://www.phototransferapp.com/mac/

    REQUIREMENTS
    Access to a Wi-Fi network is required for this application to work. Some corporate and public Wi-Fi networks may not allow connections to be established between devices.
    OS X 10.9 or later, 64-bit processor
    This application requires having "Photo Transfer App" installed on your iPhone or iPad (Free with an option to upgrade for $6.99/year)
    or "Photo Transfer App" installed for Android Devices (Free with an option to upgrade for $4.99)
    PS: Check the alternate suggestions at macupdate.com.

    Sometimes "FREE" isn't always the best route.
